Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

A connected community empowering all to achieve educational goals and live healthy and financially confident lives.  We believe that acting out our mission daily allows us to celebrate diversity, enact meaningful change, and create a more inclusive community.  

Our motto is #LiveUnited, which highlights our belief that it is through continued intentional, united action that we create change, make sustained progress, and elevate all voices in our community. We believe that every individual in our community provides valuable experience, perspective, and insight. It is because of this understanding that we can advance our mission and progress for our fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. 

We believe that individuals enhance our work and culture because of their identity or differences. We do not discriminate against anyone’s socio-economic class; age; disability; race, ethnicity or nationality; gender; gender identity and expression; sexual orientation; religion and worship practices; education; veteran or military status; family or caregiver responsibilities; personal appearance; or political affiliation.  

We therefore challenge our community to hold our organization accountable as we strive to create a culturally competent, humble, and responsive environment that is non-discriminatory, anti-racist, compassionate, and kind.  With a zero-tolerance policy, we are committed to addressing any such discrimination.
